Double Crunch with Twist

Step 1. Lie flat on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your right hand should be behind your head and your left hand should be on your stomach.

Step 2. Use your abdominal muscles to simultaneously raise your right shoulder and left leg off the floor crossing them towards each other until your knee and elbow meet in the middle of the movement.

Step 3. Then, lower them back to the starting position. Perform all of your repetitions to one side before switching the movement to the opposite side.


The double crunch with twist is a combination abdominal exercise that works the upper and lower abs. With the upper part of his body, the user performs a standard crunch with a twist, bringing his rib cage towards his pelvis. This movement engages the upper abs. With the lower part of his body, the user performs a single-leg bent-knee leg raise, bringing his knees towards his chest. This movement engages the lower abs. The knees and elbows should touch at the top of the exercise. This exercise is a safe exercise for those with back pain to perform. Perform all of the repetitions to one side before changing position and performing them to the other side.
